What To Expect
Bolivia’s Showcase Colonial City & Seeing Real Dinosaur Footsteps!
Our tour of Bolivia starts in the colonial city of Sucre, which can be reached via a quick flight from La Paz. This colonial city attracts visitors due to its well-preserved Old Town, featuring buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries: Archbishop’s Palace, Chuquisaca Governorship Palace, Metropolitan Cathedral, National Library, The House of Freedom, Supreme Court of Justice and many more. Among the highlights for today is a track site called Cal Orcko. Nine different morphotypes of REAL dinosaur tracks have been documented there.
We are provided with a 3.5-hour guided tour of Sucre. We then take a 4-hour drive to Potosi. Potosí was founded in 1546 after the discovery of the rich silver deposits in the Cerro Rico Mountains. It soon became one of the wealthiest and largest cities in the Americas. Some of the city’s wealth from silver mining was used to build magnificent baroque churches and monasteries. The history of Potosí is still reflected in the narrow streets, colonial mansions and the many churches. Potosi is unsurprisingly on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Before moving onto Uyuni via a 4-hour drive today, we do a silver mining tour in Potosi. The mines of the Cerro Rico mountain are the richest in all of world history and may have produced 60,000 tons of silver back in the day.
Jeep Safari on Salt Flats, Salt Hotel, Train Cemetery, Salt Factory & More
Salar de Uyuni
Today we start the 3-day Jeep safari tour. The first stop is the Train Cemetery, where we are provided with a 30-minute guided tour. Next is a 1-hour guided tour of the salt factory in the village of Colchani. Next is lunch, which is included on today’s tour. Afterwards, we are taken to salt flats called Salar de Uyuni. It's the largest salt flat on earth. We are first provided with a 15-minute guided tour of some wells, getting an idea as to how they work geologically. We then see salt piles which resemble cones.
Next is a 20-minute drive to the old Salt Hotel. There we have a quick look as to what is now a museum. Next is a 40-minute drive onto a site called Isla Incahuasi Island. There we have about 2 hours to take postcard-perfect photos of the salt flats. Lastly for today is a 3-hour drive to the village of San Juan. Dinner is included on today’s tour, around 8:30pm.
Note that today's itinerary changes a little during wet season, which is January through March.
The destinations for today are Hedionda Lagoon, then Cañapa Lagoon, then Honda Lagoon, then Siloli Desert and finally Laguna Colorada (a.k.a. Red Lagoon). Laguna Hedionda is notable for various migratory species of pink and white flamingos. Llamas and alpacas are also seen grazing in the area. Home to flamingos, Laguna Colorada is a shallow salt lake whose white color contrasts with the reddish color of its waters. We have around 1 hour at each destination. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included on today's tour. We sleep near to Laguna Colorada.
Bathing in Hot Springs, Volcanic Activity. Sulfur Springs, Rock Valley & More
The destinations for today are the geothermal field at Sol de Mañana, then Termas de Polques hot springs (bring swimming attire and a towel!), then Salvador Dalí Desert, then Laguna Verde (a.k.a. Green Lagoon) and then the village of Villa Mar. Sol de Mañana is a geothermal field characterized by intense volcanic activity. The sulfur springs field is full of lakes and steam pools filled with boiling mud. Known for its spectacular scenery, hot springs and flamingos, Laguna Verde is a salt lake home to minerals that render the color seen in the water. We have around 30 minutes at each destination. We also have around 30 minutes to bathe in the hot springs. Breakfast is included on today’s tour, around 7:30am. Lunch is also included on today’s tour, around 1:00pm, specifically in Villa Mar.
Following lunch via a 2-hour drive is a visit to the Valley of the Rocks. There we have around 30 minutes. Our last destination for today via a 2-hour drive is again, Uyuni. After dinner, we take a 55-minute flight to La Paz. We are then taken to our hotel near to the airport.
